Post Papa's Day


It's a different Father's Day this year - I do not have my papa to celebrate with anymore. No matter how others say time passes and things will heal, it seems that the pain lingers on like the scent from an extinguished candle. Instead of healing, I'd say old distant memories are merely being clouded by new recent ones, much like the moon being masked by moving clouds. As the dark clouds drift away, the brightness of the moon reveals itself again. Behind that active schedule and smiling face, the sense of loss of a parent still feels like a part of myself is forever gone. Wish you were still here, papa!

Hi Jaime, this is so true with whichever parent has gone on. I still have my 81 year old dad with me but my mom passed on 17 years ago & I still miss her so. That's why it's "carpie diem" for me all the time, never delaying any chance and time that I get to be happy with those whom I love! Oh BTW, I've finished HWRL, what can I say, it's a 5-hankie of a weepie!!! As for the ending, objectively speaking it was the perfect one for the drama, it's as if all the episodes led to that one last stretch. But as a BYJ fan, I super DON'T LIKE it! Sometimes I think Korean scriptwriters are sadists, pain upon pain, couldn't they have at least given Jaeho the happiest of moments?!?! Love Guapa

Hi Lady,

Even I lost my father 11 years ago (my mom 15 years ago), still feeling the same like you. The feelings of missing are getting weaker with times, but when something comes up or some special times I still miss them ...

love,
Y.

Hi, hi Chinggu!

My heart aches out to you knowing how close you are with your father, but I know that he's up there praying and wishing all of you here a very blessed and happy life. Like Hyds and all the sisters said, be strong and the pain will slowly ease it's way out.

BTW, that is a very cute pic of YJ with a kid. Where did you get that?

Here's hoping that you were able to enjoy father's day with your family and loved ones. Love yah!

Hi Jaime

It's been a long while since i posted a comment here. My heart goes out to you and I fully understand how you feel . . . I lost my dad to cancer just 3 years ago. It was very difficult,painful but I choose to keep only the wonderful memories and believe that I should be happy for him cos he doesn't have to suffer anymore . . .

Stay strong, my dear

Hi Hi Guapa,

So sorry for my late reply. Yes, HWRL is so heartwrenching, especially if you are a YJ fan. But it is an eye-opener to know how the Korean society was like back then. I am surprised people look down on orphans (instead of pitying and helping them) which is no fault of their own?? In that aspect, I like the drama like FIrst Love and HWRL which reflect how real people lived in society. Happy watching!

cheers ... jaime

hi alcy,

Thanks for sharing your experience with me. Sorry about the loss of your father, I also agree he is no longer suffering. Many things and people still trigger memories of my dad, I think I have to treat it as a positive thing. Please take care!

cheers .... jaime
